Net_Music_Weekly: Breakthrough [de Berlin]

breakthrough01.jpgBreakthrough — an experimental 12 hour event distributed across Berlin locations, inter-network and radio space :: June 27, 2009; 12 noon – midnight.

The term breakthrough describes a sudden shift in understanding or technologies, and, finally, a clearing (Lichtung), an entry into unknown and unmapped territories. An enclosure is breached allowing access to another, totally unforeseen state or space. Communication is thus implied, a new form of exchange, perhaps between two otherwise unconnected domains, between the living and the dead, between many worlds. What does the sheer possibility of a breakthrough imply for communication between the past and the future?

Breakthrough, as event, signals a change in direction, a pointing towards new ways of actively describing and creating the world. Within a complex mise en scene of workshops, lectures and performances, diverse artists, theorists, researchers, and hackers collaborate in the creation of a breakthrough which can rupture the enclosure of scientific rationalism and enlightenment without recourse to named magic. Self-organising nodes construct an event occupied with the dislocation of representation [language, software], time and space, and maintained with a strict scheduling and interrupt system backbone (micro-FM and Internet).

Participants: backyardradio Berlin, Oswald Berthold, Benjamin Cadon, Ewen Chardronnet, Alejo Duque, Verena Friedrich, Brendan Howell, Jonathan Kemp, Yunchul Kim, Martin Kuentz, Olga Panadés Massanet, Shintaro Miyazaki, Douglas Park, Otto Rossler, Gordan Savicic, Danja Vassiliev.

Activities: practical endophysics, sound and radio wave transitions, diagrammatic formation, clustering and islanding, simulations coding and exploration, biologic interface, crashing, brain writing, construction, environmental steganography, data forensics, escape hatch literature, novel geometry description, life coding, interrupt theatre, pornographic coding, amateur radio astronomy

Constructivist Workshop: Breakthrough will be prepared within a three day workshop at _____micro_research [Berlin] :: June 24-26, 2009 :: Linienstrasse 54. Berlin 10119.

Postscript:
1]

Byrne: “I do not want to get a long half-hour involvement about Faraday cages, diodes, or transistors and so on. Ken, in very simple language and very shortly, have you been able to break this thing technically?”

Attwood: “Technically, no.”

[Voices From The Tapes. Peter Bander. 1973]

2]

Whatever you feed into the machine on subliminal level the machine will process–So we feed in ‘dismantle thyself’ […] We fold in writers of all time in together and record radio programs, movie sound tracks, TV and juke box songs all the words of the world stirring around in a cement mixer and pour in the resistance message “Calling partisans of all nation–Cut word lines–Shift linguals–Free doorways–Vibrate ‘tourists’–Word falling–Photo falling–Breakthrough in Grey Room.

[William S. Burroughs. The Soft Machine. 1961]
